The Google Block Won’t Really Affect Current Huawei Users



The intense trade battle between US and China is apparently coming for your smartphones, as Google announced earlier that it is going to block Huawei from using Android apps on its  devices.

Google has pulled Huawei’s license, after an executive order has been given by US president Donald Trump, aiming to ban the Chinese company’s equipment from US networks.

Now Egyptians are of course wondering where that leaves them at? US citizens will not be affected by this ban; seeing that Huawei’s phones are no longer available in the US market.

So again, where does this leave us, poor Egyptian consumers?

Well, the situation isn’t as horrific as many think it is. Right now, this ban will have no effect on current Huawei users. Google said that the Google Play Store and security features will continue to be available on existing Huawei phones.

This means that any device from the previous devices and the recent Huawei range release will operate normally, As for anything else that is to be released in the future, will not have access to significant Android services, such as Google Play, Maps and the Gmail app. 

Huawei phones not affected by the Google ban:


Huawei P30: P30 Pro, P30, P30 Lite

Huawei P Smart

Huawei Mate 20: Mate 20 Pro, Mate 20, Mate 20 Lite, Mate 20 X

Huawei P20: P20 Pro, P20, P20 Lite

Huawei Mate 10: Mate 10 Pro, Mate  10, Mate 10 Lite

Huawei P10: P10 Plus, P10, P10 Lite

In a statement, Huawei said: “Huawei will continue to provide security updates and after-sales services to all existing Huawei and Honor smartphone and tablet products, covering those that have been sold and that are still in stock globally.”

And it seems like the company also has a back-up plan, as Huawei’s head of consumer, Richard Yu, told the German publication Die Welt back in March, that the company has been working on developing its very own operating system, in anticipation to such an unfortunate event happening.

Facebook Announced ‘Secret Crush’ and lovebirds Can’t Wait!




It looks like Facebook is channeling its inner tinder with a new feature that Mark Zuckerberg announced at Facebook’s developer conference, F8, a feature that gives the application an advantage over other dating apps.

The Secret Crush feature was announced at the social network’s annual F8 developer conference, it allows Facebook Dating users to send a signal to a friend that you have a crush on. If that friend happens to also have you on their list, Facebook will notify both parties!

Why would this give Facebook an advantage over other dating apps? Because while Tinder matches you with a random person, Facebook is helping you to hand-pick that specific friend you are so looking forward to dating.

The dating platform was already launched back in September 2018, and is now expanding to include more countries. Coming to make your love fantasies turn into a reality.

While Facebook is working towards making your crush list turn to more than that, we, on the other hand, are considering the ways this could go terribly wrong for some.

We live in the age of cyber-bullying, and this feature can be easily used to prank or bully someone by adding them to the list; just to mess with them and give them false hope.

Others can use it just out of curiosity to know who has a crush on them, but are they really interested? Or just filling some void, to feed their ego.

The list even lets you add up to nine friends! Now let’s say, you add the nine, two of them turn out to be crushing on you, what’s your next move? Throw a dice, and randomly choose to break one of their hearts?

Facebook says it won’t use data from the Secret Crush to make any sort of content or advertising decisions. For example, just because you add someone to your Secret Crush list doesn’t mean you will see more of their posts in your News Feed. “All activity that occurs in FB Dating stays in FB Dating and will not be shared externally,” a Facebook spokesperson said in an email.
